ARLINGTON, Texas (WUSA) -- The Washington Redskins shocked the football world, including the Dallas Cowboys, in the first half of Thanksgiving's matchup at the new Cowboys Stadium.

Tony Romo threw for 441 yards on 37-of-62 passing with three touchdowns and two interceptions in the setback. The Dallas signal-caller had been undefeated in his previous five starts on Thanksgiving Day.
Dez Bryant hauled in eight passes for 145 yards and a pair of scores for the Cowboys (5-6), who had won their last two games.
Griffin finished 20-28 with four touchdowns and one interception and 311 yards.
The Cowboys outscored the Redskins 28-10 in the second half, but the Redskins held on to win 38-31.
